Soul Flames

Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore

The demon king has been defeated, and a devastating war averted. The kingdom of Avaraline is on the slow road to recovery with Alysia at the helm.

Velvet sleeps, wrapped in magical crystal, Myne inactive, unwilling to do anything without her lover, the previous cost too high and too raw for them both.

But things are far from over. Ignoring that the demon king's retinue are still at large, and the neighbouring kingdoms are restless because of what had transpired, the world is stirring, the winds of change are blowing, the world on the brink of another evolution, the consequences of which will be more far reaching than anyone realizes.

Destiny however has plans of it's own. Chris, a young man discovering the truth about himself, and Rachael, a young woman hiding who she is, are both about to find themselves intertwined in the fate of the world.

When secrets come to the surface, the results can be far beyond what either party considered. Especially when they hail from an earlier age...

This story is the sequel to Dawn Weaver, and takes place some years after the first.

However, it can be read independently of the first book (while knowledge of the first book may make some things clearer, it is not needed at all to understand most of what is going on and enjoy the story for what it is). The two main characters are new characters, as is the majority of the cast. 

Note that this story is much heavier on the transgender themes than Dawn Weaver, and it comes in to it from very early in the story. The gender bender element itself don't come into play until much later however.

It is also not an Isekai story, at least not from a technical viewpoint.

Overall

there is nothing to hate here, but much to love

Reviewed at: Chapter 17 – Like Old, Like New

Do you remember Robert Jordan ? Well, it feels a bit like his style. It's quite slowpaced, with entire pages spent describing clothing. Very well written.

While the lgbt aspect is core to the book, it isn't aggressive. More like added flavor giving weight to characters. It feels natural, not artificial and never ridicule. as a non-english native speaker, it's a bit confusing having a mc thinking himself as a she being true to herself, but you adapt pretty fast.

It's a postapocalyptic story in a fantasy setting, so no mad-max here, and no supermutants, replaced by magics and nekos ^^
i'm at the point where the mc leave his shelter and explore the new world, and i have to say it's pretty exciting.

Overall

Too much mumbling but in 3rd pov

Reviewed at: Chapter 13 - Buried Past

The story is good

The pace is good if a little slow

The narrative is too much mumbling but its not in the first pov, make reader uncomfortable.

 

I hope the mumbling can be decreased.

 

Thank you for the hard work.

 

And please continue the stories

It is really good.
